Fortune’s annual ranking of the World’s Most Admired Companies is based on a survey of U.S. and global Fortune 500 companies posting the highest revenues in their respective industries. To identify the top performers in 52 industries, executives, directors and analysts in those industries were asked to rate companies on nine criteria:

  • Innovation
  • People management
  • Use of corporate assets
  • Social responsibility
  • Quality of management
  • Financial soundness
  • Long-term investment value
  • Quality of products and services
  • Global competitiveness

Companies had to achieve scores in the top half of their industries to be listed.

Schneider Electric regularly appears in industry rankings aimed at promoting sustainability and inclusion as last month in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index that provides a unique barometer of gender-equality performance across all sectors worldwide.

For Schneider Electric such recognitions reinforces the company’s strong commitment to an inclusive, diverse culture and its longstanding efforts to promote gender equality.
